To enable developers to more quickly adapt their applications to Tensilica’s multicore configuration, PolyCore Software, Inc.'s Poly-Platform now supports Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS on Tensilica’s Xtensa multicore devices. This partnership enables developers to take full advantage of multicore platforms while easing software development and increasing performance.
Poly-Platform is a collection of productivity tools and a runtime communications stack that simplifies the process of developing applications for multicore architectures. Using Poly-Platform, designers can optimize performance, improve time-to-market, and preserve existing and future software investments. Engineers are able to quickly configure and reconfigure the application, and when the time comes to implement new multicore solutions, existing code may be reused and scaled from one to many cores. Poly-Platform supports the Multicore Association’s Multicore Communications API (MCAPI), providing users with an efficient, standardized programming paradigm.
Express Logic’s ThreadX RTOS is a small-footprint, fast run-time environment that supports Tensilica Xtensa processors, and now supports Poly-Platform’s operation on Xtensa multicore devices.
